Summary

A Warhammer Horror audiobook

A disgraced warrior-priest who prowls the Greywater Fastness is forced to confront his past when a message from an old friend sends him on a perilous quest. In an isolated village full of untrusting souls, his darkest secrets threaten to come to light.

Listen to It Because:

Explore a corner of the Mortal Realms full of dangerous characters and dark secrets in a tale by Josh Reynolds, master of the sinister.

The Story:

Harran Blackwood was a Warrior-Priest of ruthless virtue. Now he's a man with a scorched reputation, prowling the back alleys of Greywater Fastness, content to fight the petty wars of racketeers for survival. But when a desperate message arrives from an old friend, Blackwood is forced to confront a past he thought long buried. 

Summoned to the isolated village of Wald, Blackwood sets off on a perilous trek to ensure the sins of his former life remain forgotten. He soon discovers that Wald is a hostile, secretive place with sins of its own. Deep in the murky marshes, where the cruel chants of village folk echo and the stink of death hovers low, Blackwood must channel his bitterness and rage to defy the ancient darkness that now hunts him before he is devoured, body and soul.

simply excellent AOS horror!

For fans of the grimdark vibe of the warhammer brought to AoS this is a must listen. a great story and the narration is really appropriate (it gets a little getting used to)

highly recommended!

Repetitive

Story seemed weak, constantly going back and fourth gaining little chunks of character information. Nice been in the world but overall weak storyline needed be more horror and suspense for this to work with a strong punch of a story backing it up. Worth a listen but for disappointing

Awesome!

There’s something great about this book that makes me want the story to go on and on. So easy to listen to and follow along.

Excellent story of the old world, even in the age of sigmarines

I have been a fan of GW novels and games since the 80’s. I am truly not a fan of the recent conversion of the old world to something that looks like 40k, but is steampunk. That said, this was an excellent story with an excellent reader. The voice at first seems a little over done, but in time it grows on you. The story itself is in the old tradition, and was quite good as both a fantastic story and as horror fiction (left you wondering).

Great Warhammer Horror

The narrator gives this story an excellent atmosphere and does a great job conveying the horror of this setting. I totally recommend this book.

hold on, it builds up!

I am more of a Warhammer 40k fan than Warhammer, so I didn't know almost anything about this realm of fiction. As a result, I was a bit lost for the 1st chapter or 2. But as the book continued, I was pleased to find that the author, Josh Reynolds, was still doing very good work in the fantasy genre's of horror in addition to league grim and darkness of the 41st millennium.

The book almost felt like some sort of 16th century noir. The descriptions of the environment and feel of the story were evocative.

I finished this audio book in maybe 2 1/2 days, maybe less.

I must admit that the reader took a bit of getting used to, but by the end, I had really come to enjoy his performance.

This book just calls out for further novels incorporating the main character.

Great story! Not so great narration.

I really liked the story, even though it wasn't scary.
To bad the narrator wasn't up to par.
I haven't heard any other of this narrators work, so I can't say if this just wasn't a story suited to him or if he just narrates this way.
His cadence really bothered me. It was like a mix of someone telling a corny campfire horror-story and a lazy drawl. It really made it hard for me to stay focused on the story.
Which is a shame, because the story itself is really good and another choice of narrator would've completely transformed it.

A Dark Swamp-town mystery!

Not a story for the faint of heart, but one I thoroughly enjoyed! This story was an absolute joy to listen to, and I would love to hear more about the epic adventures and downfall of Haran Blackwood! Packed with action, suspense, a fair bit of comedic moments, and a good dose of grindhouse-style horror! I was almost brought to tears towards the end, and am really praying for a series to be made of this amazing character! "How about a game of cards?" 10/10! Major props to both the narrator and the author!

unfortunately a miss for me.

the story was paper thin and the narrator chose such an odd cadence for the whole thing.

the story consists of the main character thinking things look like deer and telling you how cool he thinks he is.

A nice spooky way to kill time

Great atmosphere and voice acting but the story itself feels overtly long and a little acting. But hey, it’s a nice use of credits

outstanding

the narrator was great. perfect for the feel of the story. and the story itself was outstanding. right up my alley for style of book though im not very big on reading myself. i lack the imagination. but hearing them read it the way they did really helped me feel and picture the story as it went on.

Great dark book.

This is a great book that I would love to see made in a TV show of sorts or maybe a move series as such. The reader is amazing in this role and his voice fits the scene of the book well. I would love to hear more Warhammer Horror with him.
